I do 3 sets of 40 a day.

But if I'm maxing out, I could probably do 70 tops.

I would say 55-60. Forget reg pushups. Ive been doin about 10 different kinds (Diamond, spinx, wide, decline,diver bomb etc.) , so i know my reg is better now.

what times do you do them,how long you been doing it,noticed any improvements visually and feeling stronger?

I can do 80 straight on my first shot and then 50-60 following in regular sets.... my top was 87 straight though.........................


Anyone think this is good? I would like someone thats honest to do a lil competition against.

47.

I do 25 a few times a day. I just did 47. It started to get tough at 45 and I stalled out. I was hoping to make 50. :nonono:

Maybe I should start making it 30, a few times a day.

Thats good man.. your just starting to try and do large number...

I hope to get to atleast 150 by the summer!,... I want some sort of competition though... I thrive off trying to be better than others!

When I was in my top boxing shape, the best I could do was 91 very quick push ups. Note though, I weighted 135 pounds.
Right now, I can defo do 60 straight.

Yup, it has a lot to do with weight. Like pullups, when I competed I could go 35 straight. I am 160 no, and I will be real happy if I can do 20.

I'm about 155, and right now, my "max" is around 40 I guess. I really don't do too many pushups, at least normal ones. I try and do about 4 sets of 40 a day (or at least every other though. And now I'm gonna try and do one more per set every day. As far as fast/slow, what's better? At least for our purposes?

hmm I dunno about one go, prolly about 200+

I usualy do 1500 durring my workout, sets of 100, but deep pushups with 3 chairs.

Regular ones Im good for 200 or more...usualy till I run out of breath

I have been doing pushups, bench press, on regualr basis for the last year. If you find that hard to believe then I dunno what else to say.

1500?? im sorry but i do find that hard to believe. mayb its possible i duno

1500 is easily possible. I don't mean easy to do, but for someone to do in a day after a lot of conditioning. 1500 pushups/day is probably not ideal use of time/energy for boxing though.

Jack LaLanne did 1,033 in 23 minutes for the world record back in '56 and I think it still stands. 1,500 in one sitting is right up there with the kid who did a thousand chinups. You must be one fit mofo.

I can do 28 chin ups(not pull up).:nonono:

But to be honest, I seen a guy who can do about 500 straight pushups, he was a juicing mofo at the time though.
he is dead now.

I used to be able to do like 120 in a row with perfect form. I used to get in trouble alot in wrestling athletics.:o

I do the 1500 in about 40 min to an hour, on chairs, once again, not regular. Regualr just doesnt seem to work me as hard, whilst deep pushups I really feel in my pecs.

I can do over 2000 in the same session.

Pushups just have been a big part of my work out for ages, prolly the reason I find it easy to do.

1000 chin ups I coudlnt do in a day if my life depended on it lol.


Ive been doing the 100 sets just for last 3 weeks or so. Its becoming easy however, so I think in a week Ill start with 150 sets.


Another thing is that the ability is exponential for me. I remeber when I did 100 chair pushups amd was spent, doing sets of 20. Then sets of 40then 60, then 80 now 100. Eventualy it just becomes easy to do...If you keep going at it every day for months, which is what I have been doing.

the most i ever done in a day was 500, took about 26-27 mintues, i was goin for a 1,000, but that wasnt happenin i felt like i was paralyzed after i was done

Yup, I know a guy who was on the ukrainian nat. team. He could do like 80 chin ups.

i would prolly die if i even thought about trying to do something like that lol...i can prolly do 25-35 straight pushups...i had gotten up to like 50 at one point in time when i was doing pushups on a regular basis..

I weigh 210, 6'1", and what do boxing records have to do with pushups lol? And I havent boxed for ages now, and dont think Im coming back either (that was discussed in a different topic.
